CAS Login Will Only Route To The Same Node in a WebLogic Clustered Environment Despite Proper Load Balancer and Web Server configurations (Doc ID 2189807.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 07, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

URL is routed to the same cluster node for each request instead of load balancing to other cluster members.  For example, there is the following configuration:

LB --> 3 Web Servers --> 5 Sites Nodes

Symptom:  Attempt to access www.example.com, client is redirected to Sites Node 1.  Even when Sites Node 1 is shutdown, then any attempt to access www.example.com, client is still redirected to Sites Node 1 but receives a 404 error and NOT the expected Request Timed Out error.
